    I saw this on a craft blog I subscribe too. Lovely company in all!
    Off to make my caramel apples on BT. Post up later.
    Happy trick or treating!

    So cool! I’m with you on the whole apple thing- they always *look* appealing, but the idea of trying to eat the messy treat is tough to grasp! I made caramel apples the other day and ended up cutting them up to eat them.

    That spongy toffee looks so cool- have never seen that before!

    I definitely need to try the Sponge Toffee. It reminds me of the See’s toffee chocolates that I love.

    I’m not one to turn down sweets (my scale can attest) but I’ll pass on candied apples, and well I can think of better vehicles for caramel too. We are probably passing on Halloween altogether this year. ‘A’ has been sick with what might be H1N1 or a sinus infection since friday. ‘C’, ‘J’ and I woke up coughing this morning. Something tells me we’re trick or treating at home this year.

    Ok I’m off to Trick or Eat :)

    Julie – thank you for this cool looking sponge toffee recipe – another thing I didn’t know you could make at home! I will definitely be trying it this weekend.

    The toffee looks amazing, and sort of spooky in context.

    Candy Apples! They always remind me of Halloween, well, that and amusement parks. Your discription of the carmel addiction was very funny to read (probubly because if it wern’t for the annoying wrappers, I myself would have joined the carmel addicts anonymous) If you have trouble fighting the evil temptaions of carmel, might I suggest fudge apples? It might be worth looking into and they are my personal favorite.

    This post is utterly delightful. Ever since you told me you’d be posting on Sponge Toffee, I’ve been DYING to know what it is. Whoever thunk up that recipe is PURE genius! I’m totally making it this weekend with my kids.

    Yummaroo! Thanks so much for being part of Trick-Or-Eat!

    Oof, that sponge toffee looks like something I have to force myself NOT to make, otherwise the easiness + tastiness of the thing would have me totally at its mercy.

    I love sponge toffee! I call it honeycomb candy. It’s so much fun and so easy to make it!

    The sponge toffee: how long will it keep in an airtite container? I’d love to include it in my christmas goodie boxes for everyone at work, but I’d have to work a little ahead as there are probably 60 to make!

    The sponge toffee looks so fun! Almost like honeycomb.

    i just tried to make the sponge toffee (i also call it honeycomb candy, like veggie wedgie), and it tasted like burnt baking soda! i double, triple, bazillion-le checked the recipe, and i swear i can measure! did yours turn out poorly?

    Mine turned out great – it’s in the photo! I’ve made it a ton of times – I wonder what happened?

    could you make the toffee with honey? I never have corn syrup around anymore.

    Jenny, you must remove the toffee from the heat before adding the baking powder. It happened to me in the past.

    Thanks again Julie :)

    Just tried the sponge toffee. Man, it’s good! Like you say like a Crunchie or Violet Crumble.

    Mine didn’t turn out with those big, fluffy holes like your pic shows, though. I wonder if I stirred too much or something. I used a wisk — maybe that was the issue. Anyhow, it’s still pretty dang good!

    The whisk may have deflated them a little – I always use a heat proof spatula or wooden spoon! Glad you liked it!

    What a brilliant idea to take a theme, link and post and by so doing introduce us to (in my case) 6 new and fascinating blogposts! I’m loving it. Sure does compensate for the lack of trick-or-treating in my neighbourhood. Love all the recipes and kudos to the graphic designer who so creatively linked all of the blogs via great illustrations (my former field). Well done all ’round! I look forward to more such endeavours. Might I just add that, as a confirmed foodie, I would like every post to incorporate that aspect? Although the craft doll was topnotch, it was kind of left hanging amidst all the recipes and such. Just some “creative”(?)input. Not complaining, just my opinion.

    Keep in mind that depending on where you live, the toffee may not turn out like the picture….here in Vancouver it doesn’t “fluff” up as much! But it’s still tasty!

    I’ve discovered that the tiny ‘lady apples’ make wonderful caramel apples. They are about 5 bites. I use the little sticks, and adults love them. I’m going to make them with your recipe, right now.

    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
    enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
    designer to create your theme? Outstanding work!
